HOw much should a 4 1/2 month old pygmy goat weigh?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone I have a cute little pygmy goat i got named annabelle who i got when she was just 5 days old!  she is just so cute.  I'm just asking these questions as kind of like a check up on her development.  How much should she weigh?  She weighs 15lbs now.  also how big should her horns be?  right now they are just little nubs that are less than 1/2 of an inch.

           Thanks.

It depends on the parent's size... I had twins born that were 1.5lbs and 2.5lbs and at 4mths they were about 15lbs... the parents are 75lbs and 65lbs.

Mom to a herd of animals both in the barn and in the house.... 1 DH, 1 DD, 1 DS, 4 dogs, 5 cats, 2 pygmy goats, chickens, and Scovies... What else does one need... oh ya soapping

Yep I got a goat!  He's a big fat Boer and weighs more than I do! SO I didn't respond.

Everything I say is fully substantiated by my own opinion!

Sorry, but I have Nubians and no idea what your baby should weigh.  As long as she seems to be growing, in good flesh, and healthy, I wouldn't stress about it.

It will vary alot, but if she is growing ok and seems healthy she's probably fine. I've had 8 week old kids that were already 15+lbs and I've had kids that were 6+ months that were only that big. Different goats grow differently, different lines grow differently.

I have 2 10 month old pygger systers { lol! } and to be honest, it is unique to each goat. Petunia weighs about 80 or 90 pounds, and poppy about 65- 70ish. Hope this helps!!
